This book is great. I cannot wait to start the next one. I have recently started reading Whitlow's books and every story seems better than the last. I am amazed at his ability to develop different main characters, male ,female, old, young and make their perspectives so real. I was laughing... loudly at times. The characters reflected so many things true to human nature.The plot twists and turns and keeps you guessing. His storys are so much better than the titles or clips. Even Whitlow's description of food, restaurants, landmarks,etc. make you feel like you are stepping in the pages. His books over-deliver and leave you with plenty to think about afterwards. GREAT READ!!!!
Life Support and Life Everlasting are both excellent reads. Although both were available when i went to the store, i only bought Life Support, thinkig if i did not enjoy it, i would pass on the other. By the second chapter, i had run back to the store to buy Life Everlasting and i was not disappointed. I also loved the fact that the books included a budding romantic relationship. I can hardly wait to read more of his books.
After reading the first book in the series, Life Support, I would have been HIGHLY distressed had there not been a sequel to complete the story. Life Everlasting was NOT a disappointment. In fact, I considered it better than Life Support. I planned to read Life Everlasting while on vacation. However, I started it several days BEFORE vacation began - and finished it the day after I began reading it! It was too good to put down. I would have been quite lost, however, if I had not read Life Support first. I do not consider it a good stand alone book at all. You need to read Life Support first or it will be very confusing. I plan to read more of his books. This book does leave room for a #3, but there's no frustration if a #3 doesn't come.
This was a very good read. As a sequel to Life Support, it wasnt disappointing. It was a bit clich in places, and that was a little disappointing, but overall the book was good. I really like the way the issues of Life Support were resolved. The book left me with a feeling that while life goes on, another book in the series isnt necessary, though it would be welcomed! I liked the way Whitlow linked back to Life Support just enough to keep new readers from being too lost while not enough to bore returning readers. If you havent read Life Support yet, I definitely recommend it first.
"Life Support" left me hanging and I was glad to know that "Life Everlasting" finished the tale. I saw shocked to see Baxter "born Again",so to speak. The series was just long enough. I was saddened to see Ted loose the use of his hand but he "dealt" with it and carried on. That is Life. I am a "Handy Man" and do a lot of work like Ted. I however can not play the piano. Very enjoyable reading.I found myself getting "choked up " a couple times.
My friends and I couldn't wait for this book to come out so we could see what happened to the characters! It was worth the wait. The plot didn't unfold the way I thought it would, and I like that. Robert Whitlow books are always worth the read.
